The Australian Museum (AM) is seeking Expressions of Interest for two new Co-Directors for the Lizard Island Research Station (LIRS), located on the Great Barrier Reef.

Lizard Island Research Station is a leader in reef science, drawing marine biologists worldwide to study the reef and its climate change impacts. The incoming Co-Directors of LIRS will be instrumental in building on the AM's reputation of scientific excellence and actively promote LIRS as a leading voice for reef science and protection.

In addition to a passion for coral reef science, candidates must exhibit resourcefulness and proven leadership skills, be capable of implementing innovative science programs, cultivating partnerships with key organisations, and effectively overseeing staff, mentoring trainees and coordinating activities at the research station. For suitable candidates, this role presents a transformative opportunity.

The joint directorship of LIRS is an executive role that directly reports to Professor Kris Helgen, the Chief Scientist and Director of Australian Museum Research Institute (AMRI), who is responsible for implementing the AM’s scientific agenda.

Please note this is not a formal job submission webpage, as a recruitment firm will oversee the search and appointment of the new Co-Directors.
